When I was a sophomore in high school I went to visit my sister Allison at BYU. Back then we weren't all that close, mainly because when she left for college I was still in junior high. Still, we spent the weekend shopping, eating delicious food, watching Drop Dead Gorgeous, making ice cream, playing games with her friends, and laughing a whole lot. When the weekend was over, I spent a decent portion of my flight home crying because I had had such a good time and I didn't want to leave. We hadn't done anything particularly special, but that's the great thing about Allison - she makes anything fun. Whether it's watching a crappy TV movie or getting the latest Harry Potter book at midnight (and then having a sleepover) or just telling a story about dogs, Allison loves to be silly and always finds ways for people to enjoy themselves. Which is probably why we can have phone conversations that start with "I really don't have anything to say" and end almost an hour later. Today she turns 30, and I'm grateful that in the last 10 years she's become one of my best friends. Happy birthday, poopsie!


  1. I love Allison too! I will never think of Scamps or Ann Taylor Loft the same again. Happy Birthday!

  2. I had forgotten about the reason for your special discount to Ann Taylor Loft... maybe I just have a bad memory today, but I don't think I've actually ever met Allison. Anyway, that was a cute post.

  3. you and your family make me so cute.

    and if you think i didn't think of you when i posted that breakfast recipe, you're sorely mistaken. i knew you'd appreciate it.

    also, last night i dreamed that you and i were in london together, and that you had new jeans that were like two sizes two small and i couldn't figure out why you were wearing them, but you kept asking me if i thought they were cool. hmm..

  4. Awwww, thanks poopsie. Dave suggested I keep an eye on upcoming Lifetime and Family Channel movies for any gems we might want to watch while you're here!
